Purgatorial Society

The mission of the St. Cletus Purgatorial Society is to engage all faithful in unifying our prayers and sacrifices to benefit the holy souls who have gone before us. Our society will strive to cultivate a culture of consciousness of the solidarity amongst the Communion of Saints (Church Triumphant (Souls in Heaven) / Church Militant (Souls on Earth) / Church Suffering (Souls in Purgatory)) throughout all generations and reinforce the continual need of prayer and sacrifice for the relief of the suffering souls. May no soul ever be abandoned. May purgatory be emptied!

RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults)

Our RCIA process (forming adults who want to become Catholic) is done in conjunction with St. Francis Xavier and St. John of the Cross parishes. Inquirers meet weekly and deepen their relationship with Jesus, as well as learning about Catholicism, and are received into the church at the Easter Vigil on Holy Saturday.  The RCIA team, with participants from all three parishes, journeys with our enquirers and helps to form them in the faith.
